Forum: movies Subject: Help-scripted blitzes from Arkive and maybe MORE

Well... Tweakers for today at 23:00 hrs 2014 July 4th are scattered throughout pages 1 thru 20. Archiver even admits that he is not offering these adverts manually but with an AUTOMATED Script.

Somebody with moderator authority please look at the general video listings....

That isn't as bad as yesterday by density but now what?

MORE scripted blitzes....? ? ?

There seem to also be an inordinate frequency of hak5 contributions. looking at the time of post there are mighty close together.

True IA has become a space age soapbox but this is abusive to the rest of the folk here.

Can't our site overseers do anything to curb the .... stuff?

I'm not sure if IA has the funding to hire an IT to hafta deal exclusively with Arkiver and the other scripted inputs.

If they aren't stopped now we won't HAVE an IA site for anyone else. I have SEEN their posts and regardless of the prose - - - SPLOP - - - - MORE......stuff. an'more an' more (where's the factorial symbol?)

A little help, please?

we appreciate your feedback. if you'll notice the "this just in" and "All items (most recently added first)" queries are for mediatype:movies, not a query of any particular collection. that means any item uploaded that is mediatype:movies will appear in those queries regardless of which collection they are uploaded to. we do our utmost to remove spam. the uploads to which you refer are not considered spam.

(updated for typo)

Well, Hiya Jeff.

So you're saying that any input at all into ANY of the Video sub groups is mentioned in the Moving Picture Archive.

Any opinion about the inundation of uploads via some computer automation.... ie a 'script' ?

Sorta like wading through a wheat field to find a few oats.
